Market Performance For The Week

Disclaimer: Past performance is no guarantee of future performance

The Good News

Earnings of both large and small companies are coming in above expectations.

GDP price index reaches a 40-year high.

The Bad News

But 2Q GDP came in below expectations. 

As are a lot of announcements these days. There are now more economic announcements missing expectations than beating. 

And inflation numbers came in hot, again.

The State Of The Market

The market has been on a rather good run. 

But seasonal trends are not in our favor. 

Though spending in the aggregate remains strong and above trend. 

And incomes remain above trend. But they are coming off of stimulus induced highs, which may weigh on spending going forward.

Especially if US consumers have already spent most of their savings.

Maybe Amazon is giving us a heads-up, or maybe consumers are just shifting their spending to other segments of the economy.

But many will probably buy the dip, if there ever is one.
